Thinking of going solar?

Energy storage provides peace of mind today, with the flexibility to maximize savings in the future.

1. Protect yourself from power outages.
Stop relying on unruly generators and use solar energy as an automatic and reliable backup to power your appliances and lights during a blackout.
2. Become independent from the grid.
Protect yourself from time of day billing and use energy storage to offset peak energy rates and save on utility bills.
3. Live life uninterrupted.
Store electricity for when you need it most: after dark, when the grid fails, during natural disasters, or emergencies.
4. Reduce your carbon footprint.
Support the production of clean, sustainable energy and make a real impact on climate change.

Powerwall can provide a number of benefits including:

Use more of your solar
If you have solar panels already installed on your home, adding a Powerwall allows you to store excess energy rather than sending back to the grid - reducing your grid dependence.
Time-Based Control
Powerwall can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
Back-up Power
Achieve safety and peace of mind that you have backup power for essential appliances and devices during an outage. Fridge, lights, cell phones, heat, wifi and more.
We are a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer

Shift is a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer, which means we offer a customized solar-plus-battery solution that enables you to access the free, abundant power of the sun and reduces your reliance on existing grid.

With Powerwall you can store solar energy generated during the day for use any time. During the day, the sun shines on your solar panels, charging your battery. At night, your home draws electricity from your battery, powering your home with clean, sustainable energy 24/7.

Installing Powerwall with Shift is easy. We take care of everything from system design, engineering, permitting, installation, and commissioning.

Powerwall consists of a 14 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter and software that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most. The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall or on the ground, indoors or outdoors, and is connected to the grid to export excess energy, maximizing your opportunity for economic benefit.

How Much Does Tesla Powerwall Cost?

A single Powerwall costs $11,600 + tax. This price does not include supporting hardware, shipping & handling, installation, electrical upgrades, permit fees, utility application/connection charges, taxes or optional solar power system. As per Tesla’s website, the final design and pricing will be based on your electrical panel, home energy usage, number of Powerwalls and where you would like your Powerwall installed. Here is a more detailed breakdown of typical costs associated with a turnkey Powerwall installation in Canada:

  • $11,600 – Powerwall (13.5 kWh battery with integrated inverter)
  • $1,660 – Backup Energy Gateway (Tesla’s supporting hardware that allows you to monitor, control and update your Powerwall via the Tesla app)
  • $1,200 – $2,000 – Shipping & handling (Tesla Gigafactory USA to installation address)
  • $1,900 – $5,300 – Labour (it typically takes 1.5-4 days to install Powerwall, depending on project complexity and size)
  • $1,000 – $3,000 – Materials (conduit, cable, sub-panels, breakers, etc.)
  • $250 – $1,000 Permit fees (regional electrical safety authority)
  • $1,000 – $3,000 – Project design & engineering

Pricing above assumes that Powerwall is being located within 5 feet of your main electrical panel and that all existing electrical panels and wiring are up to code.
